Happy Grocery Store Music?
Anybody have a lead on where to get some royalty free "Grocery Store Muzac?"

I've check my regular royalty free sights and been able to find "Grocery Store Ambiance," just not the music to go behind it.

Any ideas?

I need one too, so I asked my musician friends to contribute with a piece of their own. Why don't you do the same? Besides, grocery stores vary a lot and a supermarket chain in Boston will play different music than an ethnic grocery store in NY. Many don't play any music at all.

After some extended searching, I'm thinking of using a loop from www.opuzz.com. I hadn't run across them before, but they have some interesting stuff.

I used to be in charge of 12,000 grocery stores' music and ads (not Muzak, but same type of deal).
We did regular music chosen by the individual stores by genre.
I started doing elevator remixes of songs with midi files, a jv1080 and Cubase.
Man, you can get some cheesy sounds doing GM midi files with a cheap synth!
Anyways, try a trumpet sound lead with bass and drums and lots of reverb...

Thanks for the tip Chris, but I had to ditch the grocery store aspect of my short for the dvchallenge. I asked two local, independent stores as well as a chain, no takers on letting me shoot in them. Oh well, I think the alternate ending may work out for the story as well.

Thanks again,

the safeway that i regularly shop at uses a satellite service that (i swear) is a VH1 outlet.

i hummed along to Tom Petty's "Into the great wide open" yesterday while picking avocados. it felt pretty surreal.

Not satellite.. Safeway was one of our big accounts! I put that song in the AC rotation 6 years ago... Sometimes I miss that job, not some of the people I worked with mind you...
